audit housing authority. >> chair: this is brought by a number of supervisors. supervisor campos, do you have opening comments? >> supervisor campos: i will be brief in my comments. since i was elected supervisor four years ago, we have heard from time to time from a number of residents from the public housing developments about issues involving living conditions and the housing authority developments. it is something that we have been hearing more about in the last few weeks. i actually have three housing authority developments in my district, -- dwellings, holly courth an alameny (sounds like). there are other supervisors, and other members of his body that also have housing authority developments in their districts. i know that all of us on this board are committed to making sure that the needs of these residents are addressed. it is in that spirit that i wanted to bring us item forward simply to provide the city and county of san francisco that clear picture of how the needs of these residents are being met and we are mindful of the fact that we are talking about an agen

anything. commissioner avalos. >> thank you chair campos. i'm going to be brief because you mentioned a lot of things i want to mention. thank you for your great service and dedication to the city and county of san francisco, and transportation. your mark is been made in the city. i share the same sentiment about the staff, and the level of expertise in helping us make decisions and move forward on a number of key projects. i want to say thank you for your great service and wish you all the best. you have many years ahead of you to explore music, and your loved ones and i wish you all the best. >> colleagues, any other comments? one we now go to mr. moscovitch. >> good morning chairman and commissioners. i am honored to have been asked back. i am at the tail end of the flu, my voice is low. i appreciate your comments mr. chairman. i will give you a couple of observations. first of all the city and the challenges it brings is way too complex for a single person to ever be able to make a mark. this is an excellent example where teamwork is needed; there has been amazing teamwork with my
chair campos, we are proof in the pudding, we have had our disagreements. as chair and vice chair of ta in the past year, we have worked together incredibly closely, almost always having a common voice, fighting together whether regional or within the city. even though supervisor avalos and i don't always agree on everything i will be able to have that same kind of relationship and working collaboratively to move together the broad goal of making the city truly transit first, and improving transit throughout the region. i look forward to working with you together. >> i appreciate the fact that is vice chair you have worked hard to make sure that we have a common ground. and some of the differences on a couple of issues don't get in the way of the work that needs to be done. i appreciate that and i appreciate the work that not only you do but also your staff. commissioner mar. >> thank you chair campos. i want to say that avalos as chair will continue love the great work that our current chair campos has led, making sure that there is equity in how we distribute the transportation res

'll bring you a piece down. thank you. >> thank you, supervisors. supervisor campos. * >> thank you, president chu. iu. and supervisor chu, i'll be very brief. i think it's probably fair to say we have, you know, sort of a slightly different voting record on some issues here and there. but what i have always appreciated about you is that i always felt that i could have a pretty open substantive conversation and that, you know, you were there to listen to different points of view. and i think that's very important in this line of work. and i have always appreciated the professionalism and the respectful way in which you approached the job and you interact with your colleagues. i think someone said you can tell a lot about a person's soul by how they treat their dog. and you and i are dog people. [laughter] >> there is a unique bond that those of us who love animals and those who love dogs especially have. i think by that measure in terms of the quality of your soul, given how you treat and talk about bertie, i think that that makes you an amazing person. and i wish you the very best
to say we encourage every effort to do that. that the proposal you're putting forward supervisor campos would not make a huge difference in those rates. i mean looking at the numbers is that the rate recovery is roughly in the order of 10% of the rates themselves, and so if you shave a little bit off of the rate recovery it's 10% of a very big number so we need to have a more aggressive approach i think. it's important to do that but we need a more aggressive approach. that won't quite hit it. and the other thing i wanted to mention is that the work that local power has done is -- first of all it's preliminary and secondly it's really a framework for talking through all the issues and it's fairly complex as everyone who has encountered it has recognized and there are a lot of assumptions made that have a lot of implications in the way things turn out but it's a framework where we held the discussion and pull out the issues of different approaches, different scenarios and what not, and that's been a fruitful discussion to have, and we would like lafco to urge that that kind of discuss
, supervisor campos. supervisor campos. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. i was watching the hearing and appreciate the work that was done by the mta, by bart, and i also appreciate some of the questions -- actually, all of the questions that were asked by my colleagues. and i know that this has been something that we have been working on for quite sometime. and you know, as i said when we first had this item come before the board, you know, we want something that is fair and reasonable for both agencies. and i appreciate the fact that, that both agencies have been working, you know, to get to that point. i'm not really sure, to be honest, if we're necessarily there and that's not, you know, because of a lack of trying. but i wanted to just point out a couple of things that to me are sort of interesting and certainly raise some concerns. i do have a question about why, you know, when we -- when we sent these items back, there was an idea that if we have an agreement where we're paying bart and we have an agreement where bart is paying us, that there be some similarity, or at least, i
to you. i do want to thank chair campos, and the vice chair, it has been a pleasure to working with all of you in carrying out the authorities business this past year. >> we will open it up to public comment, any member who would like to speak on this item come forward. public comment close. unless there is an objection i will ask the clerk to call out of order item 11. >> recognize the outstanding service of jose luis moscovich, executive director for the authority from 2001-2012. >> i want to thank mr. moscovich and ask him to come forward. his mother is here. let's give him and his mother a big round of applause. (applause) >> i want to say couple of words about jose luis. i do know of anyone realizes that jose luis moscovich a the authority and the city and county of san francisco for almost 20 years. he started with the rather interesting title of director of congestion management, not an easy task to deal with. and having been you cma, congestion management agency function of the authority he helped grow the agency to just over 30 positions today and created i think a culture
candidates and i agree with commissioner campos we have some talented people who are sharing the ship on staff who i know we all have a lot of confidence. beyond why there would be such a rush with having whether a person starts july 1st or august 1st or september 1st why that matters. the goal s to a have a process and i don't think it matters if it starts thirty days after it's penciled out. this strikes me as a tail wagging a dog. so therefore the process has to be keyed to this date i think the date has to be keyed to the process whether it's july or august 1st. my motion is i'm going to substitute motion as follows that we adopt the portion of the proposal in terms of retaining a consultant and we direct staff to have a 5 person research committee and that the reminded of the proposal is the call of the chair whether at a special meeting or whether. so the only portion of the current proposal that would move forward would be the rfp everything else would be for the staff to prepare whether or not t is necessary >> thank you commissioner wiener any second? we have a second >> ca
formally, of course. the people i've talked to are commissioner wiener and commissioner campos >> i want to know if we can do this before the march meeting you'll make your intentions known. >> thank you. >> just a question for the t a staff. it sounds like i have a draft already to be posted. generally how long does it take? >> this particular rsc is posted and responses are already up . we may not be able to select the first name until the process has been done >> how long for the interviews? how quickly would you begin that process for interviewing? >> the schedule is on page 179. it's supposed to be very fast. very quick process >> and would that require an action? >> it's done administratively. we all sort of want to get started on the process of having a consultant on board. it so i would say the t a can start the action without having to come here for the board approval nor to the personnel committee. i wouldn't be costly moving forward with the legislation as it is now because there's two outstanding issues one is how many people are on the committee and what is the expect
have in common, and rest rooms, cleanliness and supervisor campos and i are talking about a difference of 0.5, 0.5 percent. and so, it is so i guess that my point is that as you continue to focus on nine, you can see and continue to share love, not against anything against. >> we are going to be focusing on districts nine and ten and eleven. >> and four. >> and in case anybody else is listening, we are going to definitely focus on 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 11. >> you left 8 out. >> and 8. >> not the king of the parks themselves. >> but in all seriousness, particularly as we know the three of us rally around mcclarin park and the second largest park and that is important it touches a lot of people. so it is a huge priority. >> and obviously, we would certainly encourage the board to, you know, think as the economy has improved in recent years to think about reinvesting a little bit more in parks. you know, i think... >> you mean, in terms of the budget? >> yeah, in terms of gardeners and staff, i mean that we are really short and so we tend to move sort of pieces around the chess board and

[cheering and applauding] >> i'm not done. at the all star hotel she organized monthly tenant meeting with her property management and her fellow tenants to address wide range of issues including food justice and public safety. she successfully lobbied to get community kitchen hours extended so that tenants could cook healthy meals in the evening and set out a weekly -- and [speaker not understood] of helps out at the weekly food pantry w
